The negotiation rights to Perry have some value due to the 8th year. Thus any team trading for him gets rental Perry, and the ability to offer him a longer contract.
Doesn't the new CBA limit new contracts to 7 years unless re-signing with current club?
And you are wrong... Anaheim won't trade him a rental. If he won't re-sign with them, they will want something big in return or keep him for the playoffs. No team will trade for him unless assured of a contract extension.
